Tearoom Transformation Week One

I popped into have a wee look at my shop before work starts officially on Thursday this week. I opened all the shutters letting in a lot more light than I expected and swept the doorway. I was looking round trying to envisage how it'll look, what colour schemes I'm going to use and where I'll do all my baking.

I was quite sure I wanted a duck egg blue/green colour for the interior. This colour has been on my mind for months so I'm sure it's the right one.
I'm going with the sea splash colour. What do you think? It is a lovely pastel shade and will go with all of the pastel coloured things in the shop. 

My signage will still be pink and a big part of the look. I'll be painting the stone floor a dark grey colour and the exterior will be either white or light grey. I haven't decided just yet, but I'd better be quick because I'll be painting this week.

On a visit to my aunt in Yorkshire at the weekend, I went to a vintage fair and got some pieces for the shop. I fell in love with these vintage, plastic handled knives.
I'll struggle to get these to the tearoom because I LOVE THEM and want to keep them for myself...


  1. You've picked some gorgeous colours, they will look fab together! Good luck :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. Cripes! That is so exciting! I think your colour scheme sounds fabby! I always love a little mustardy yellow thrown in with pastels too, it makes it zing...x

    all the very best with your shop!


  3. Ooh you are in the West End, know Old Dumbarton Rd from my uni days. From wandering around Kelvingrove and the transport museum instead of studying and drinking in The Tap Shop at the top of Sauchiehall St for live jazz on a Friday night....memories!
    There's no excuse not to come see when you open!
